ABC Soaps In Depth - - Contents -

Like most of our read­ers, we find it hard to imag­ine GEN­ERAL HOS­PI­TAL’s Dim­pled Don suc­cess­fully ex­tract­ing him­self from Mob life. As he him­self said of Ju­lian’s ef­forts, no one gets out alive! And even if Sonny some­how suc­ceeded… what would he do with him­self? As many of you noted, this man needs con­trol. Por­trayer Mau­rice Be­nard gave us pause when he re­cently sug­gested Sonny could be­come Mayor Corinthos. As the city’s leader, he’d have that power… but we’re get­ting ahead of our­selves. Sonny’s first step is just break­ing free and while we don’t have much faith in that en­deavor, we’re quite im­pressed with how it fits into the show’s on­go­ing con­ver­sa­tion. With a fac­tion of fans con­tin­u­ing to cry for GH to stop the vi­o­lence, it’s just not that easy — and the writ­ers have been show­ing us why! In fact, the Cover Story on page 24 de­tails the lat­est hic­cup en­coun­tered by Sonny in his con­tin­u­ing ef­forts. Get­ting out may not be easy, but watch­ing Sonny try has proven to be good soap.

“Give me the gum, Sonny.

Come on, spit it out!”
